Council mulls water cutback

Will city have to turn down tap like drier areas of state?   

As California scrambles to address dwindling water sources four years into its worst drought on record, Del Norte County is notable for having continued to see damp winters, though with less rainfall than usual.

Another dry year

Smith and Klamath river flows at fractions of normal levels; no relief predicted in summer

Though faring better than the rest of a drought-riddled state, Del Norte County is emerging from another dry winter and headed into a summer unlikely to bring relief.

Both the Klamath and Smith rivers are flowing at a fraction of their usual depths. At a third of the river’s 30-year mean for the month of April, this month the Klamath has been flowing at 8,360 cubic feet per second on average, compared to its customary 25,600 cfs near Klamath Glen, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s records. Seeing half its usual volume at Dr. Fine Bridge, the Smith has been at 2,384 cfs this month, compared to the 30-year average of 4,480. 

Among the most vulnerable to low flows are the fish that inhabit these rivers. While the Klamath is expected to host good numbers of salmonids in the coming fall, senior environmental scientist for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Wade Sinnen, said a dry spell means a loss of habitat for the fish, which could mean lower populations in the future. 

Supes OK 'In God We Trust' for Flynn

At a Del Norte County Supervisors meeting where a Klamath fishing guide addressed the board on how new state regulations could cost him and other guides, it was an agenda item where hundreds of thousands of dollars weren’t at stake that got the most public attention.

That item — whether or not to post the words “In God We Trust” somewhere inside the Flynn Center — ultimately was approved by the board on Tuesday and sent to the Future Facilities Committee so that details of placement and style could be hashed out at its meeting next month. Although Supervisor Roger Gitlin spearheaded the action in Del Norte, the item’s origins go back to a pre-fabricated resolution that the organization In God We Trust — America, Inc. sends to municipalities across the country in order to simplify the process of gettingas  the words posted in their government buildings.

“In God We Trust — America, Inc. is a volunteer organization devoted to distributing the informative email packet to every elected official in America,” the group’s website states. “The mission is to promote patriotism by encouraging citizens and elected officials to work together to be part of this vital patriotic movement.”
